The intentional termination of a pregnancy.

We have unconditional love.
Thus, we have unconditional social responsibility.
Thus, we act in the best interests of society.
It is often better for the whole of society not to bring a person of certain familial history into this world.
People have the potential to understand both this and their situation, and act according to love, social responsibility, and consequently the best interests of society.
Therefore, abortions are potentially wise.
1. A pregnant mother realizes that she is a retaliatory, unfulfilled person and is not as happy as the other mothers around her. This same mother realizes that as she currently exists, she would not be an optimal mother. She understands that typically, children given up for adoption are not as happy, and have significantly less chance of living good lives. She wants what's best for the people of the world, and chooses to have an abortion.

2. A pregnant mother rationally understands that the genetic predisposition of the child is not only a less than optimal one for the child itself, but, should the inheritable genes be inherited, will be less than optimal for the future of humankind. The pregnant mother makes a wise choice and aborts the mistake before it can continue.

Historically known as 'The South'.

'The South' was a very large region in the lower eastern portion of the contiguous states of the USA. You may see a map in the following link: (link is not maintained) http://americancivilwar.com/pictures/comp1850.jpg

The South was a place which supported slavery, and had a wide-spread cultural deficiency in the appreciation of love, justifiably. The South used slaves to perform difficult manual labor for the benefit, mainly, of the people who 'owned' the slaves.

Today, the 'heartland' refers to areas of the USA which are still significantly influenced by this powerful history. The heartland is a place where love is secondary to selfish desires. The heartland also consequently has an overabundance of the most unfortunate people: the 'republicans'. 'Republicans', like their ancestors, possess a great lack of empathy for the life around them, causing relative harm and distress.
Animal abusers
Bush enthusiasts
Slave holders

A straight female who has an unusually strong desire to befriend gay men.

If you were alarmed by or made curious by others' definitions often including an explanation concerning the woman's general unattractiveness, please read the following:

In my personal experience, having been to a few gay parties myself, there is an overwhelming (100%, so far) tendency for the straight girls at the party who strongly befriend the gay guys to be rather unattractive, in one way or another.

None I have spoken with, and I am a very curious and outspoken person, have had an easy time with straight guys.
A woman who chooses to have unusually significant friendships with gay men.

SSBBW: Acronym: Super Sized Big Beautiful Woman

Many of these women can be lovely and decent. They can cause happiness in those whom choose to be around them. They've often endured more rejection than folks around them and have consequently needed to do more tough introspection to validate themselves and have gathered valuable wisdom and kindness in the process.

It should be noted, however, that this rather desperate self-validation, in the practice of an irrational woman, can lead to the development of a personality that is strongly disagreeable to folks who value sanity, groundedness, or peace of mind in their associates.

Below is a potential conversation that an SSBBW might incur on an occasion separate of her involvement:
Male A) Hey man. You know that girl I've spent some times with recently whom I haven't wanted to tell you much about?

Male B) yeah. I've been curious about that.

Male A) Yeah well she's an "SSBBW" and I didn't really want to bother going over the details with you of our trying to achieve platonic symbiosis despite her S.S.ness.

Male B) Oh, ok. That's cool. Anyway, why are you bringing it up now?

Male A) Well I wanted to let you in on an interesting and fun factoid: She asked me how I felt about her body.

Male B) Haha. Uhoh! And you were honest?

Male A) Yeah. I told her that I just try not to think about it. Then she pressed for more specifics on what my feelings are about fat people and my feelings about having sex with her. And I answered her, and she hasn't responded to my outreach in quite some time; I think she's gone as a result of this.

Male B)*warm smile + smirk* Wow...What did you say about the feelings about sex?

Male A) Well I told her that fatness seems to indicate strong potentials for a few things to me: stress-coping dysfunction, a lack of nutritional intelligence, poor self discipline, and poor emotional vitality. And I told her I could be wrong, but it's just what I've gathered and seen over my lifetime, and that I would find it disturbing to be bonding with a body which indicates things like that. What I didn't tell her is that her behavior fit my stereotype pretty strongly.
